Friday Vibes


Happy Friday! This week was a doozy. Not feeling the best of vibes, but I’m trying to turn it around for the weekend. I took my first lab practical yesterday (basically an exam based on the work/slides we’ve gone over in lab), so I have pretty much been in crazy study mode all week on top of regular life. Really working on this whole life-work-school balance thing. I’m only taking one (1) class this semester and I honestly couldn’t imagine taking more than 1 at a time right now. I have to say, the class I’m in right now (Anatomy & Physiology) is one of the most eye opening and interesting class I’ve ever taken. Hard as heck (a lot to memorize), but wow, our bodies are pretty amazing and super busy!! Can I tell you how much I love being a student again?

What else am I loving?

We love this recipe for Blueberry Almond Oatmeal Bites for breakfast or a healthy snack! Serve with vanilla Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey, so good!
